Lin-Manuel Miranda has changed the game in Broadway with his famous
musical Hamilton. He had us all blown
away with his view on Broadway and his genius mind. Lin has constantly
continued to teach the world valuable lessons through his music, musicals, and
writings.

Lin-Manuel’s father, Luis Miranda came to America from Puerto Rico
at age eighteen (Dzidrums 9). He attended New York university where he would
soon find the love of his life (Dzidrums 9). Luis became a democratic party
consultant and created the Hispanic foundation (Dzidrums 11). The Miranda’s
soon welcomed their son Lin-Manuel into the world on January 16, 1980 (Dzidrums
11). Lin-Manuel was born in the Washington heights area of Manhattan but five
years later they moved to Inwood. (Dzidrums 11). Music was something very
special to Lin so he would often listen to a wide-variety such as, pop, rock,
blues, and others (Dzidrums 11). His family owned a collection of vinyl cast
recordings Lin’s favorite was The
Unsinkable Molly Brown (Dzidrums 11). Occasionally Lin’s family would go
